Car Won't Start--Fuel Pump Issues--Help

Hi, I have a 95 Camaro Z28. I have driven it all winter, sometimes in subzero temperatures, and it has never failed me. I drove it to school today, came back at the end of the day, and it wouldn't start. I am 100% sure it's my fuel pump. Electrical is fine, it turns over, but it cant really start the engine itself. I can press on the gas and it makes a difference. But the car won't start and it's about 40 degrees out here now. What gives? What do I need to do?

put 12 volts directly to fuel pump prime connector to see if it is the pump, u should hear it come on if does still work.
the connector is on passenger side near strut tower. there is a pic of it on shoebox's web site

Also what do you mean by put 12 volts right up to it? Like touch the end of the connector with a 12 volt battery and try to start the car? Sorry, sometimes ya gotta spell it out for me.

if that works, at least u know you dont have to replace your pump.
if it isnt your pump though, it might be the injectors. first test the pump, then go from there
and yes, connect your positive terminal on your battery to the prime connector. i used the wires that come with my voltage/ohm meter. doesnt really matter though
